The cold diet
Yes, she's back. Yes, I had a very good loss this week - for me - but that will happen when you lose your appetite for about 4 days. Or maybe I should call it the Passover diet, because I was eating matzo brei & matzo ball soup for about 3 days ... Read more
Patience can come in real handy when you can't break a plateau, & sometimes you learn it from odd places. I play a game on my kindle called thread words there are 10 levels of the game, with each higher level getting more difficult (maybe this s... Read more
Why habits are a bad thing
Maybe you saw this coming; maybe you didn't. But yup, habits can be used for good or evil.
Maybe you eat, out of habit, at certain times - whether or not you're truly hungry.
Maybe you reward yourself with food - a very hard habit to b... Read more
Why habits are a good thing
They put you on autopilot. I sweep the stairs 3 x week. Today was my day. Despite being woken up at 4, ultimately I overslept. I decided I could skip the stairs today.
The laundry room, where the litterboxes are, get swept daily. So when I ... Read more
At least half the fridge is clean
Still feeling eh, but I tackled the bottom half of the fridge. Just that takes half an hour! Either I'm getting better at using up my freggies, throwing them out before they liquify, or cleaning, cause it actually wasn't in bad shape. Or maybe a... Read more
Indulging in Jewish comfort foods& ramblings
I guess the reason I was so tired yesterday was because I'm still not 100%. I've been feeling eh off & on for a while now & it's actually worse today. Weird, cause I felt just fine during h run - but that's what's been going on. At the moment I'... Read more
It's been a while
Since I've run 10k, that is. And I must admit I'm a wee bit tired right now. I have a lot of things to do, but I really just want to relax. At least the monster that was my appetite has subsided! I was sooooo hungry afterwards . . . had what I p... Read more
You're only allowed to pout for 1 hr
I wasn't shocked by yet another gain this week - not because of how I'd eaten, but simply because of how my clothes fit. And they don't make me comfortable. And the thing that really gets me down is I simply don't know why. I feel I've been eati... Read more
Taking my new cuisinart for a spin
After about 25 yrs, the latch on my food processor simply snapped off. I finally got a new one & I've been putting it thru it's paces.
The first recipe I tried was the high fiber brownies from SP. I'm truly puzzled by the reviews - they got... Read more
Only half crazy
Those are some of the Tshirts & bumper stickers you see at expos. Yup, I've gone & done it: registered for the Vegas HM again, despite the disorganization last year. Told DH I didn't have to do it, especially considering it's the most expensive ... Read more
I ate chocolate mousse for breakfast
Maybe this should have been yesterday's blog, but it's not an april fools!
I had Greek yogurt, added 1 scoop chocolate protein powder, sprinkled on 3 tbsp granola & topped with soyatoo (soy whipped cream). A bit of a treat, but not too unhe... Read more
I ate 1/2 cup ice cream
Well, technically not ice cream as it's made with coconut milk.
So why is that momentous? As I've mentioned, ice cream isn't a trigger food for me. Not like cookies. I wish I could fit it in a bit more often, but I can take it or leave it. ... Read more
Look ma, no cavities!
Despite the fact that it had been 3+ yrs since I'd been to the dentist - just one of the costs of moving - not to mention the fact of dragging 4 senior animals back & forth to the vet. Hey, the boys officially turn 11 sunday & I just remembered ... Read more
I don't want it
That's the tip I read today in some magazine. When you decide not to eat something (or buy something), tell yourself you don't want it, NOT you can't have it.
Been real tired lately, a bit under the weather Monday (I often feel that way bef... Read more
Are you stuck in a healthy rut?
It's so easy to reach for the same old favorites . . . over & over again. And that's fine if the scale's moving in the right direction; if it's not, unsticking it might be as simple as changing things up.
I'll bet you've heard this before: ... Read more
